Announcing The International 2016 Cosplay Competition, featuring a $15,000 prize pool up for grabs during the year’s premiere Dota 2 tournament at KeyArena.
For the first time ever, the dedicated cosplayers of Dota 2 are invited to craft their best Dota-themed costumes to display their talents at the Main Event of The International.
Contestants do not need to be event ticket holders—all cosplayers who register to participate will be admitted to a Prejudging Phase at KeyArena on Wednesday, August 10. The Performance Finals will then take place the following day on Thursday, August 11 to determine who will walk away with the winner’s share of the cash prize.
For those cosplayers who may not seek the limelight of the competitive stage, all fans wearing cosplay in attendance at The International 2016 will receive this year’s Dota 2 Cosplay Pin, available while supplies last.
